Kintex Classic Tape 5 cm Blue
5 cm x 5 m | Free color choice
Our kinesiology tapes are often used for sports injuries or in physiotherapy. They are used to support and stabilize muscles, fascia, ligaments or Joints.
For this tape application you will need a tape strip in the shape of an I. For this you can either use our Kintex Classic Tape and cut the strips yourself or you can use our Kintex PreCut Tape and tear the tape strips accordingly. Measure the length of the strip from the shoulder down to the ridge. When cutting, make sure you round the corners. This will increase the adhesion of the tape.
Preparation and application of the Kintex Kinesiology Tape
To ensure better adhesion, you should first remove all oils, creams and hair from the affected area and clean it additionally with alcohol. Then, the patient bends sideways forward and takes the arm above the head. Tape the base at the bottom of the iliac crest and place the tape along the course of the back muscle, first parallel to the spine and then extending out toward the shoulder. The tape may extend beyond the shoulder.
Instructions for the use of Kintex kinesiology tape.
Kintex Tape should be left on for approximately 1 week, with the main effect expected in the first 3-5 days after application. You can shower, bathe, swim or do sports with the tape applied. Even sweating is possible under the tape.
